25. Tom Brady (2021)
Everybody in America knows Brady because he is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. It’s fascinating because he isn’t an exceptional athlete and never had the most spectacular arm. But his consistency defines him. He spent 20 seasons with the Patriots before he moved to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After winning six Super Bowls with the Pats, he added another ring in Tampa.
He made history with this achievement because no other player in history has won so many Super Bowls. Furthermore, he’s even won more championships than any individual franchise. It’s an insane statistic but just shows what a serial winner he is. Also, he helped the Buccanneers to become the first franchise to win a Super Bowl in their own stadium. Brady takes football to the next level.
